Palo Alto Networks firewalls replace traditional port-based traffic classification with application identification

Enterprise 2.0 applications such as Facebook, SharePoint, Twitter and Skype are flooding corporate and government networks.  These applications can deliver significant business value but can also serve as conduits for data leakage, identity theft, malware, and other threats.

What are IT departments to do about this phenomenon?  Unfortunately, it’s not a simple binary decision to block or allow these applications.  We know attempts to block Enterprise 2.0 applications often fail. Technically savvy users are circumventing traditional security controls and using Enterprise 2.0 applications more than ever before.  Furthermore, blocking these applications can be a competitive disadvantage in terms of recruitment and execution of new marketing and sales tactics. 

The power behind the Palo Alto Networks' family of next generation firewalls provide policy-based visibility and control over applications, users and content with three unique identification technologies: App-ID, User-ID and Content-ID.
